, and it does appear according to nbc news sources in law enforcement, that there is some video of somebody placing a black bag or a dark bag at the site near the site of the explosions. we should caution that there may have been a lot of people placing bags on the ground, as they come to watch runners pass the finish line. that may not have been the bomb at all. but if you are an investigator trying to get to the bottom of this, that's someone opportunity to talk to. and what law enforcement sources are telling us is that there are a lot of people now that they want to talk to based on all of this evidence. but with everybody, world media here, law enforcement agencies from around the country, really lacking at this, there are a lot of -- there's a lot of information that's flying around and a lot o opportunipportuniti to conclusions. that appears to be what happened. nonetheless, they've made some tremendous strides. we can see that based on what we're looking at on the ground since the attacks on monday afternoon. guys? >> a great rundown, scott, of what we know and don't know at this po
. i want to congratulate and thank all of the law enforcement authorities for the extraordinary job that they have been doing on behalf of our citizens. in the past few days, we have seen the best and the worst of human behavior. it is the best that all of us really want to focus on. like everyone, we are going to keep watching. we will await word from the law enforcement officers before commenting further. it's a huge easure fore and an important moment to welcome one of our most important partners, our close neighbor and our friend, and i want to welcome my friend, the secretary. one of the first calls i made when i became secretary of state was to josé. we share an alma mater together. he was a graduate student, i was an undergraduate. whatever we don't say right today, you can blame it on them. we obviously share much much more than alma mater. both of us are privileged to represent our extraordinary countries. we share a remarkable friendship and very strong partnership that is growing stronger all the time. for generations we have lived side-by-side as families and neighbors,

. let me assure you the subcommittee is ready to help in any way we can to help law enforcement against perpetrators and planners of this act of terror and insure ensure the full force of justice is -- to think something like that taking place anything this committee do we stand ready. i want to express disappointment with regard to you and me in the subcommittee. in somecas has not takimportantm disappointed that the depant bee authities the committee to expand federal prison -- it has fallen from 23,000 in 2006 to 12,800 in fy14. this is an area where leadership is necessary and we have made it very clear that i want to support you in this effort that we need to see to take it seriously in an energetic way and we have not seen it. why can't that picture with the entire federal government and why can't the ncaa -- from prisons. you can put a man or woman in prison for 50 years and give them no work and no dignity. this will not displace american jobs but a proven way to end recidivism to make progress. i am also dissatisfied and disappointed with a noncommittal response to my suggestio
with this legislation. we are a safer country when law- enforcement knows who is here, has their fingerprints, photos, conduct background checks, and no wonder these to look at needles through haystacks. both the refugee program and asylum program have been significantly strengthened in the past five years, such that we are much more careful about screening people in determining who should or should not be coming into the country. if there are any changes that our homeland security experts tell us we need to be made -- s, security experts tell us need to be made -- a there were widespread erroneous reports of arrests being made. this emphasizes how important it is to let the facts come out before jumping to any conclusions. mostieve this is the balanced piece of immigration legislation that has been ever produced. the american people and all of our colleagues should read this bill over the next few weeks. they will have ample time to look at every page and every paragraph before we go to markup in the committee. what they will find is a bill the secures our borders, combats the overstay, cracks down
grateful for that. we o'a tremendous debt of gratitude to all of our law enforcement professionals. these men and women get up every day and they show up every day they are going don't always know what to expect. our thoughts thare wi the victims and we pray if you are eir recovwe send our prayers e collier family. police rn to be a officer. he was just 26 years old. his family said he died bravely and he committed his life to serving and protecting others. obviously, on the there is many other answered questions. among them, why did young men who grew up and studied here as part of our communities and country resort to such violence. how did they plan an carry out these attacks and did they receive any help? the families of those killed so senselessly deserve answers. the wounded, some of whom have to learn how to stand, walk, and live again, deserve answers. so i've instructed the f.b.i. and our intelligence community to continue to deploy all of the necessary resources to support the investigation, to collect intelligence, and to protect our citizens. we will determine what ha
these photos of what remains of a pressure cooker which was used as the delivery device for the explosives. law enforcement sources tell nbc news the bombs were built to act like homemade ieds. sources tell nbc news the bombs included a battery pack and "the boston globe" reports investigators recovered a part of a circuit board at the scene. the bombs were packed with scha shrapnel. the bomb was not capable of creating a massive blast. instead, its main purpose was to maim and injure. photos obtained by whdh in boston showed the area where the bomb was left moments before and moments after the detonation. the fbi is looking at these photos and others like them for clues as to who placed the bombs and when. now there is precedent for devices like these. in 2004, the fbi sent out a memo on the use of homemade pressure cooker bombs. al qaeda's online magazine gave instructions for making them just last month and in the 2010 attempted attack on times square, one of the devices found included a pressure cooker and 125 firecrackers. meanwhile, the search of an apartment belonging to a foreign studen
rights. we gave that information out to our officers and i think all law enforcement was operating under those rules of engagement. >> back to the apartment real quickly. there were devices found in the apartment but you can't comment on what? >> no, i didn't say that. i can't comment on any evidence that was found there. sglp anything that was found in the apartment. are you confident that these two were acting alone and that there are no more suspects out there? >> i'm confident that they were the two major actors in the violence that occurred. i am very, very sure that during this thorough investigation we'll get to the bottom of the whole plot. that's all i can say right now. i told the people of boston that they can rest easily. the two people who were committing these vicious attacks are either dead or in custody. we cleared dozens of packages that had been dropped by people fleeing the scene. so everything was treated suspiciously. in a situation like this, bombers often target first responders so we were expecting another device. we handled that very, very carefully. the eod team
court decision against him and say he was not given his full constitutional rights under the law. >> already this row about whether he should have been read his so-called miranda hospital rights. it really underlines the kind of scrutiny this trial is going to be subjected to once it's underway. ,> the scrutiny for the trial but also the scrutiny of the investigation up to this point. people will be wanting to know why the fbi interviewed the older brother in 2011 at the request of the russian government, who were concerned about his links to chechen separatists. at that point they came back and said there was nothing to worry about. ,s president barack obama said they have to find out why two young men who came to this country 10 years ago, who studied here and seem to be part of the fabric of society then suddenly decided to do what they did. who perhaps radicalize them, who guided them? was there someone dictating what they do? ity people leave -- believe is too disillusioned people -- two disillusioned young man working on their own. they will not get a chance to speak to him
system of justice. under u.s. law, the united states citizens cannot be tried in military commissions, and it is important to remember that since 9/11 we have used the federal court system to convict and incarcerate hundreds of terrorists. >> dzhokhar tsarnaev and his brother originally born in kyrgyzstan charged. tamerlan tsarnaev is dead after a shootout with police, dzhokhar has a gunshot wound to his neck after police apprehended him friday night. a source with firsthand knowledge of the investigation tells cnn that dzhokhar tar neve is on a breathing ventilator and heavily sedated. as we talk about the suspects' future, we cannot forget about those who lost their lives. let's take time to recall them, chris tell krystle campbell, 8-year-old martin richard whose mom and sister were greefsly wounded and 23 year ode linzie lu a boston university graduate student from china. and then of course m.i.t. officer gunned down, 26-year-old sean collier. we're told vice president biden will attend a memorial service for him on wednesday. as we mentioned, dzhokhar tsarnaev won't be charged as
surveillance by law enforcement officers. as you mentioned he was intubated and sedated with serious injuries. as the investigation continues the focus today is on what charges he will face and when. one week after two deadly bombs exploded in downtown boston, killing three and injuring 183 people, the only surviving suspect remains in serious condition at beth israel deaconess medical center. as federal prosecutors prepare to bring charges against him, law enforcement sources say dzhokhar tsarnaev is unable to talk after a gunshot wound to the neck. exactly when he suffered this injury is still unknown. >> this is a very complex investigation, and it's hard to say exactly how he received that injury. there was certainly a shoot-out in watertown. there were explosives thrown. so that's being looked into right now. it's hard to say exactly how it occurred. >> reporter: we're learning more about the tense moments right before tsarnaev's arrest. this aerial video shows infrared images of him hiding out on a boat in the backyard of a home in watertown. according to a law enforcement source close
will be placed on the record for those who stood up for sensible gun safety laws in america. i think jo put it well. the parents who have come here and the family members -- i think joe put it well. the parent to have come here in the family members, we need to find a political courage with the disappointment in this vote today. this is not the end. there is more that we can do and will do. reaching out to convince members who voted the other way today and perhaps in the next election to challenge them. bring the issue forward to the american people. this is worth the fight. we have got to stand up to bring sensible gun safety to america. god forbid what tomorrow's victims will be, but we know they will be there. we have to do everything we can to spare another family from this agree. thank you. let me salute all of my andeagues, particularly joe the families who have lit a candle. that is a hard, hard thing to do when you go through what they went through. you do not want to get out of bed, let alone come here and argue truth to power, which you have done. it will not be forgotten. it will
that? >> my best case scenario, again, if i was in law enforcement at this time, i wouldn't tell anything to the media until i had my whole case put together. you're going to have one chance at this guy. you've got to make the best case you can. as soon as his name or address goes public, you know, the media hoards are going to descend on this whole thing. as an investigator, make your case, then let the media come in. >> what more do you need, you first then jim, than a picture of a guy or person dropping a black bag at the site of a bombing and then splitting? what more evidence would you need to make a case in court than that? >> well -- >> picture of a person. >> that's circumstantial evidence. unless we have a movie of him actually doing it, unless we know that black bag was actually it. you know, there's too many ways as you well know that you can be attacked in court for different reasons, suggesting his hand's really not on the bag and maybe somebody dropped it a second before he walked by. there's a lot to put together from the forensic side other than a picture where he
which is apparently a flash bang used to disorient the suspect. >>> and u.s. law enforcement officials now say that russian intelligence officials alerted the fbi in 2011 that tamerlan was a physical lower of radical islam. >> the ball was dropped in one of two ways the fbi missed a lot of things is one potential answer or our laws do not allow the fbi to follow us in a sound solid way. >> reporter: the fbi says in the summer of 2011 it interviewed tamerlan and his relatives and did not find any foreign terrorist activity. >>> a statement was released. it reads in part that the caucasian mudin is not related to attacks on the u.s., they are in the war for russia it says. >>> and the suspect's father says that fbi agents called him to say that he was under suspicion. his mother says that tamerlan said if you need me you will find me. hours later he was killed following a shoot out with police. and late tonight the fbi disputeed the mother's claim saying the last contact they had with tamerlan was in 2011. >>> now as the legal process begins to unfold, the 19-year- old suspect should be
, and the law does not distinguish between rape and extramarital, consensual sex, which is also against the law. that is why so few victims go to the police. they are afraid they will be found guilty of having extramarital sex. >> activists with the women's right organization say that the death is not an isolated case. they have recorded more than 30 similar incidents in the last month alone. another rape victim, who does not want to show her face or be identified by her family name -- >> i was in a taxi. the driver drug to me and raped me while i was unconscious. when my family found out, they disowned me. my life is ruined. i cannot find the driver, but i won't give up until he has been caught. >> with a growing number of victims and their families raising their voices against violence aimed at women, change may be coming to mauritania. >> now a quick look at other news from around the world. the retrial of former egyptian president hosni mubarak will start on may 11. the egyptian court set the date after the trial start was delayed last week when the judge withdrew from the case. mubarak fac
a little easier. for law enforcement the work is not done. >> this senseless tax and the families deserve an answer. the wounded have to learn how to stand, walk, live and deserve answers. >> reporter: just information coming and from an official the federal prosecutors are at hospital right now. working on possible charges and the camping gear since last night. and it is important to note that we remember the victim's and word that stance at this moment. 50 victims are still lead area hospitals. and they are still in critical victim's. reporting live in boston, tory done last name -- dunnin.. >> and after a gun battle. the suspect, joe- kar tsarnaev, was captured by police. tsarnaev is now in serious condition at the hospital. dramatic video has been released of the shootout between police and the it was recorded by a neighbor who, like so many in the boston area yesterday, were ordered to stay in their homes. nearly 50 shots fired in the exchange. all while the suspect was holed up in a boat. after running from police early friday morning. >> president obama took a moment to acknowledg
. anderson. >> all right. don. appreciate that. bottom line there, he's communicating with law enforcement personnel via writing. we are getting new information about the wounded suspect. let's go to deborah. >> hi. i'm being told by sources being briefed on the investigation that the 19-year-old suspect is on a ventilator and heavily sedated. every several hours in the care of doctors, an interview team goes into the room to ask the suspect questions. now these questions are pretty much focused, according to my source, on public safety. for example, are there any other bombs? are there any other bomb stashes? are is there any other weapons? he has been been on a ventilator and he is restrained in part because they don't want him to rip the tube out of his throat. we've been hearing law enforcement has been communicating in writing, but what we do know is he is nodding. the responses he is giving are being given by nodding. there appears to be some sort of wound to his leg. it appears due to blood loss. he did have a wound to the back of his neck. it is not clear how that wound was inflict
of the sequester and it's important to emphasize it is not a one-year proposition is writt into law to continue. given a list of fat and the woulit be fair to say then, riouses security risk basedt right now? >> it certainly is consuming a company intelligence community leadership for what we see happening to the capability and importantly the expectations people seem to have for our having this global insight and that is going to be very hard. if we sustain sequestration through 2021, what the law calls for, as i said in my testimony to the senate in telogen's community and a day before, we collectively have to rethink what people expect from the intelligence community because it isn't going to be the same. >> general flynn. >> i just want to emphasize is a senior leader, just to reemphasize the general clapper talked about, we are about people and we do not want to damage that vital component of our capability. the sequestration provides is no flexibility. not just this year, but over the long haul. our adversaries won't take a strategic pause and the real cost director clapper highlightedvwe
verbally. he's in the intensive care unit of beth israel hospital here. our susan candiotti citing a law enforcement official with knowledge of the case saying dzhokhar tsarnaev was shot in the side of the neck. unclear whether that came during friday night's takedown of him when he was captured or shootout he and his brother had thursday night into friday morning with police in the streets of watertown. right now no charges were filed today. we heard rumblings there may be charges filed today. ended up not being the case, don. maybe in the next couple of days. >> all right. let's talk about the bombs. you have learned something new, something about where they came from, brian. >> reporter: that's right. our susan candiotti citing a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation says the current thinking right now, don, is the two suspects bought the bomb components locally. somewhere here in the boston area. but that they got the guns from somewhere else. this official emphasizing that the gun traces are under way right now. and so that part of the investigation is continu
devastation. it started out as a law enforcement investigation, but as authorities said last night that is likely to change. >> this will be a combined, federal, state and lookal effort. it will be an ongoing investigation, it is a criminal investigation that has the potential -- is a potential terrorist investigation. >> our next news briefing is just minutes away at the bottom of the hour and cnbc will carry at least part of that live. it is going include massachusetts governor deval patrick and the fbi special agent in charge who you just heard of, massachusetts, two u.s. senators are both at the westin hotel behind me and a large amount of media from around the world. everyone asked me the same question, which is why? david? >> thank you very much, scott cohn reporting, of course, from boston. after a very rough monday which sought dow plunge by almost 266 points since the biggest drop in november. futures are on the rebound. better than expected from coca-cola and johnson & johnson, but on the flipside, target warning that its first quarter earnings citing expectations and cit
? >> well, first of all, is public safety, of course. there are armed law enforcement officers, federal, state, local, out there trying to get this guy. another suspect is armed. may even have a suicide vest on. they have additional explosives. unfortunately, civilians will just get in the wake. that would be a terrible -- terrible tragedy if someone comes out of the door a think it is in the vicinity of where the suspect is and someone gets shot. very important that people stay and of the late, let law-enforcement do their job. get this person, apprehend them and start to figure out what else we need to worry about and then, obviously, go back to figure out what we missed, we should have known, what the connections are inside or outside of the country. dagen: can you give us any prospective? these two brothers had been in the u.s. for at least ten years coming year originally from chechnya to my coming here with roughly 2002-2003 based on reports. and then executing allegedly this bombing at the boston marathon. can you compare this to anything of this country has ever seen or face bef
be appropriate under federal law in this case. >> big debates just getting going. >> is. and it will go on for a long time. the court case will drag on with people second guessing judgments made. >>> a deadly effort quake has hit southwestern china we keep our gaze on boston but we are also looking to china where saturday violent shaking woke up its people. the death toll is climbing in a region familiar with the deadly earthquakes. çñ >>> this is live coverage of the aftermat aftermath. >> we'll have more from boston in a few minutes, we want to trache you to other parts of the world and other headlines we're watching. by the end of sunday, local activists say the bodies of 566 people killed over the preceding six-day period were found across syria. 566 bodies. we warn you the images you're about to see are disturbing. at least 450 victims were said to have been found in a damascus suburb. cnn cannot independently verify the images or the information we're bringing you from inside syria. >>> we turn our attention to china. the death toll is climbing after a powerful earthquake struck
in the nation legally, dzhokhar's older brother, tamerlan who was killed friday morning was a lawful permanent resident, one of the two told a carjacking victim thursday night they were the boston marathon bombers, a search of dzhokhar's umass dartmouth dorm room turned up a hat and jacket corne jack y suspect number 2. tsarnaev remains hospitalized at beth israel hospital with gunshot wounds to his head, neck, legs and hands, authorities believe one was sev-inflicted in -- self-inflectioned in a botched suicide attempt. >> canadian authorities announcing in connection with fbi they have broken up a terrorist plot to blow up a passenger train and bridge somewhere between toronto and u.s. border. a ballot they believe had ties to al qaeda overseas. >> the individuals were receiving support from al qaeda elements located in iran, i can tell you, this there is no information to indicate that these attacks were state sponsored. lou: the royal mounted canadian police stressing at no point during the invest visio investie public in danger. lou: we bin with the investigation of boston marathon bombin
or perhaps home-grown cell, but a senior law enforcement official says the evidence now is starting to point towards a domestic act of terror. scott. >> pelley: bob thank you. our senior correspondent john miller is a former assistant director of the f.b.i. john, the men do not seem to be doing anything suspicious in these videos, so why does the f.b.i. believe that these are their men? >> reporter: you know, they have other video, including the one bob referenced where they believe they actually have on tape one of the suspects in the white baseball cap putting the bomb down in front of the starbucks at the second oncation. we'reason they selected the ted twre seeg here is they wanted to find the pictures that didn't have the most sinister activity but the pictureshat gave pplthe best chance of recognizing them. >> pelley: and one of the backpacks, we're told, matched from the debris that was recovered. >> reporter: that's right, and it seems to be the same kind of make, year, and mold backpack pell is a little circumstantial but, it's a good pointer. >> pelley: deslauries said in the news
or three days while testing continues and law enforcement mess investigates and briefed senators were reminded to warn employees to be very vigilant in handling and processing all mail that comes to offices in the capitol and district offices in their home state. the very first spot for mail is at an offsite facility. that began in 2001 after a couple of senators received letters laced with anthrax. how much of a threat is ricin? ricin is toxic and lethal, but only when injected which is why the department of homeland security considers it category "b," or a lower threat agent as opposed to anthrax, which is much more deadly. >> dana bash reporting. senator wicker has additional security. >>> sports helping boston return to some sense of normalcy and fans in other cities showing their support. let's just say. the red sox in cleveland last night, playing for the first time since the marathon bombings, a moment of silence for victims before the game. this jersey hung in the red sox dugout. boston strong with the city's 617 area code. even the sox' hated rivals had their backs last night
to the bombing in boston. meanwhile, law enforcement officials in massachusetts are combing through more than 2,000 tips, looking through photos like this one, shall shows a bag sitting by a mailbox before the explosion. it is unclear at this point whether or not the bag has any relevance, but appears to be near the center of the explosion. president obama will be in boston tomorrow to attend a memorial service for the victims. for the loved once of those killed and maimed in the explosion, there is only confusion and many unanswered questions. joining me today here in new york city, nbc news capitol hill correspondent luke russert, and misterrorism expert michael leiter, and bob herbert, a distinguished senior fellow at dimos. >>> let's go to kristin welker for more. >> reporter: alex, good afternoon. here's what we know at this hour. this letter was received yesterday at an off-site mail facility. i want to emphasize that. it did not get close to the white house. it's typical for letters sent to this facility to undergo a screening. during that process, it was discovered that a letter address
all day today, and the pushback from law enforcement was plain and a little bit pointed. from the boston police department, despite reports to the contrary, there has not been an arrest in the marathon attack. the fbi went a step further. quote, over the past day and a half, there have been a number of press reports that have been inaccurate. since these sources, excuse me, since these stories often have unintended consequences, we skt media, particularly at this early stage of the investigation, to exercise caution and attempt to verify information through appropriate official channels before reporting. so, no suspect in custody today in the boston marathon bombing. there was no arrest. that did not happen. that doesn't mean there wasn't real news from the investigation today. we do know the investigators have been carefully going through a large amount of visual evidence from the scene, pictures and video, right, they say they are looking for people who might have been carrying large black nylon backpacks or duffel bags. nbc news confirmed investigators are seeking at least
that was earlier announced by law enforcement. >> it may seem that way but we just don't know. they're not tipping their hands with this at all. the state representative did tell me when he toured the site he was amazed at the level of damage done to the neighborhood homes. he said they weren't blown over like a tornado, they were blown up with the walls blowing outward. he said it looked like a war zone. >> suarez: you had an enormous fire then catastrophic explosion. is there a chemical smell in the area? when you're downwind from west does it smell like you're near a chemical plant that has some serious trouble? >> i have to tell you, where i am right now the only smell you smell is cows. we're right next to a cattle yard. i really don't know. the area is so blocked off, not even people who live there within a two-mile radius can get there to check the damage of their homes or get their prescription medicine or clothing or anything. everyone is being totally kept out of the area at the direction of the a.t.f., the alcohol, tobacco, firearms and explosives folks. >> suarez: in the core area, is
community and the attacks are impossible for the federal law enforcement community to stop. so how to make ourselves more resilient? the steps we need to take are not that sexy. we need to upgrade our transit systems and infrastructure so as to make them less vulnerable to attacks. for example, flynn notes the u.s. navy has invested more in protecting the single port of san diego that is home to the pacific fleet than the department of homeland security has invest ed in the ports of ls angeles, long beach, san francisco, oakland, seattle, and tacoma combined, upon which a bulk of the u.s. economy relies. we must strengthen recovery in the event of a biological attack, which is still the most worrying threat out there. we need to make sure that the public understands the nature of these threats and how it can help identify and respond to them. above all, it needs to understand how not to respond to them. when bad things happen, it's easy to react out of fear, emotion and anger. let's hope that in boston this week we begin to chart a different course. for more on this, you can read my column
